Anything Goes at My Craft Spot!

Happy Monday, my dear friends! I hope everyone had a blessed weekend. :o)

A new challenge begins today at My Craft Spot! It's the popular Anything Goes, so link up whatever your crafty heart desires! :o)

For my project, I made a quick card for sweet 6-year-old Maddy, this month's recipient of the I Feel the Love Project. She is battling leukemia and we are crafting in her honor this month to deliver her an abundance of love and happiness. :o)

Intended as a birthday card by the cut file designer, I opted instead to make it an everyday card to encourage Maddy (and her parents) to celebrate each new day.
The base is a Daniela Angelova cupcake birthday card cut file from the Silhouette Online Store. The flowery detailing on the frosting was cut with a DCWV swirly patterned paper, while everything else is from Wild Rose Studio's Butterfly Glade. Each flower is centered with a rhinestone to put an extra twinkle in Maddy's heart.
Knowing this card would be simplistic, I chose my favorite of the butterfly papers from the collection for the wrapper. It is inked with Dusty Concord distress ink. Because I'm 100% addicted, I sporadically added sweet flutterbys from My Craft Spot's Jar Full of Flowers stamp set. (I know, I know! I need an intervention.) I colored them with Copics, fussy-cut them out, and coated them in Star Dust before layering them.

The sweet sentiment is from Kimberly's Tiny Tags 3 stamp set, cut out with the coordinating Tiny Tag Metal DiesSnow White crinkle ribbon is wrapped around the base, layered with a bow of Grape Fizz Trendy Twine. The candle flame is covered in gold Stickles for a sparkly glow.

A coordinating butterfly paper lines the interior, waiting to hug sweet Maddy when she opens it. :o)
See how she sparkles during her recent hospital stays... she is truly an inspiration.
Be sure to flutter on over to check out the marvelous projects from my teamies at My Craft Spot! I hope you'll join in the fun this week... I love visiting you! :o) Have a beautiful day!
